You'll love Beginning Geography because it:

  • introduces primary students to important geography concepts. Give your grade K–2 students the geography skills practice they need to successfully tackle the geography curriculum now and in the future.
  • features two full-color fold-out maps that support students' multiple skill levels. One poster is a simple world map that makes it easy for young students to understand beginning geography concepts. The other poster focuses on the landforms and bodies of water studied in each unit.
  • contains activities that easily fit into your curriculum. Because the activities don't need to be done sequentially, you can pick and choose activities that fit in with your curriculum.
  • presents students with geography content vocabulary. Vocabulary introduced in each lesson helps students build the foundation they need to understand geography concepts now and in the future.
  • provides cumulative reviews that work as a formal assessment. Cumulative reviews at the end of each section help you gauge students' progress. Reviews range in difficulty and are presented in a variety of formats, including multiple-choice, and work as a formal assessment of students' skill acquisition.

    Inaccuracies
    Oct 17, 2016

    I've only just started this book with my kids, but there is a huge inaccuracy on only the second activity. It is called "Looking at a Map", and it defines a map right at the top of the page: "A map is a drawing of a place from above". Then it has a huge picture below followed by questions about the picture; but the picture is NOT a map, it is a drawing of a building from the front, not from above.
    I am hoping the book improves as we continue, but at this point I've put it on hold because it requires a higher level of reading than my kids have.

    Very good book
    Jun 06, 2016

    This is a very good book for teaching the basics of geography to young children. I thought it might be a little "dry", but it wasn't.

    Note that the description states that these are reproducible pages. You will want to make copies of the pages, as some of the activities require cutting into a page.
